As per a new study by the WHO, India accounts for the maximum number of pneumonia cases among children under the age of five. Though our lungs are designed to cough out the pockets of mucus before an infection sets in, pneumonia can occur during the course of any normal cough or cold. The mucus secreted in the lungs is a breeding ground for bacteria and viruses.
